France is set for deconfinement on May 11, but the coronavirus pandemic will continue to keep Paris Saint-Germain players away from the training facilities.
According to L’Equipe, PSG will not recall the players to the Camp des Loges due to the conditions of the deconfinement, which includes limiting groups to no more than 10 people and a ban on contact sports.
The French publication goes on to predict that the players will likely return to Paris to train with manager Thomas Tuchel in June. In the meantime, PSG will be refreshing their news feeds for information about the UEFA Champions League.
Les Parisiens reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a thrilling win over Borussia Dortmund and are eager to see if the competition will resume in August.
With the Ligue 1 season canceled and PSG crowned champions, Tuchel faces the difficult task of preparing his team for a pivotal Champions League tie (opponent yet to be determined) with no competitive games to play between March 11 (PSG’s last game against Dortmund) and August.
If Tuchel can pull this off and win PSG’s first Champions League title, it will be one of the more impressive accomplishments in football history.
